COCKATIELS ARE LOVING FRIENDLY BIRDS AND LIKE LOTS OF COMPANY FROM YOU AND OTHER COCKATIELS. MAKE SURE YOU CAN SPEND LOTS OF TIME WITH YOUR COCKATIEL/S AND HAVING MATES FOR THEM IS A GOOD OPTION TOO, BUT TAMED COCKATIELS LOVE HUMAN CONTACT , THE MORE TIME YOU CAN GIVE THEM THE TAMER THEY BECOME , THEY ARE SMART , & QUICK LEARNERS . DONT LET THEM DOWN OR DONT BUY THEM !

YOU DONT HAVE TO CUT YOUR COCKATIELS WINGS , BUT INITIALLY

WHEN YOU FIRST GET THEM YOU MAY HAVE THE WINGS CLIPPED

SO THE BIRD CAN GET USED TO THE ENVIRONMENT.

ENSURE THE WINGS ARE NOT CUT TOO SHORT AS THIS STRESSES THE

BIRD AND CAN CAUSE OTHER INJURIES LIKE , WING BLEEDS AND

IF THE BIRD FALLS , WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SOFTEN THE FALL,

THIS CAN CAUSE PAIN AND POTENTIAL PROBLEMS.

ENSURE YOUR ENVIRONMENT IS FREE FROM OTHER PETS ,

SHARP OBJECTS AND YOUR FEET IF THE BIRD IS ALLOWED ON THE FLOOR

WHEN BUYING A CAGE MAKE SURE THE CAGE HAS NO RUSTY PARTS

NO WIRES , AND THE PAINT OR COATINGS CANNOT PEEL OFF .

KEEP WIRES AWAY FROM YOUR BIRD SUCH AS ZINC WIRE

COMPUTOR WIRE, SPEAKER WIRE OR PHONE CHARGER LEADS.

ENSURE THE BIRD DOES NOT EAT POISONOUS PLANTS.

HAVE A SHALLOW DISH TO BATH YOUR BIRD.

COCKATIELS IF TAMED LOVE A WARM SHOWER WITH YOU,

BUT NOT FULL WATER , SIDE SPRAY AND MISTINGS.

THEY CAN BE DRIED NATURAL OR WITH A HAIR DRYER ON LOW.

THE BIRDS ARE VERY SOCIAL WHEN TAMED AND LOVE ATTENTION.

ENSURE IN WINTER THEY ARE KEPT WARM AND IN SUMMER THAT

THEY DO NOT OVERHEAT OR ARE KEPT NEAR BLAZING HOT WINDOWS.

THE FIRST SIGN IS RAISES WINGS , PANTING AND SOMETIMES THE BIRD

SITTING ON THE BASE OF THE CAGE.

MILD SUN IS OK AND GOOD FOR YOUR BIRD.THEY LOVE LOOKING OUT OF WINDOWS AND LOVE SOME NATURAL BRANCHES TO SIT ON IN THE CAGE AND ALSO AROUND THE HOUSE.

IF EVER YOUR PET COCKATIEL SHOWS ANY UNUSUAL SIGNS SUCH AS

ONE EYE CLOSES , NOT MUCH MOVEMENT FROM NORMAL , RUNNY OR

DISCOLOURED DROPING, EXTREME FLUFFYING , FEATHER LOSSES.

SEEK A BIRD VET IMMEDIATELY .

IF YOU HAVE GRIT SANDPAPER ON THE FLOOR ENSURE IT IS NOT TOO

HARSH OR THIS WILL BLEED THEIR FEET, USE THIS OCCASIONAL.

PAPER ON THE CAGE BASE IS BEST AND IS EASILY FOLDED / CLEANED.

PET COCKATIELS Also LOVE MUSIC , BUT NOT TOO LOUD.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PUT YOUR BIRD TO BED AT THE 5PM MYTH

THEY LOVE TO STAY UP LATE AND ENJOY YOUR COMPANY.

WHEN BUYING TOYS ,ONLY BUY TOYS THAT WILL NOT BREAK EASY

FALL APART OR ARE STAINED UNLESS A GOOD BRAND, QAULITY

NATURAL LADDERS AND DIFFERENT SIZES ARE BEST AND EASIEST TO

CLEAN, A VARIETY OF NEW TOYS IS GOOD FOR THEIR BEHAVIOUR.

IF A COCKATIEL NIPS / BITES THEY ARE USUALLY SICK OR FRUSTRATED

YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH THAT. SO BE AWARE AND SEE WHY.

THE MORE TIME YOU CAN SPEND WITH YOUR PET FRIEND/S THE BETTER

YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THE BEHAVIOUR OF YOUR BIRD AND ITS

SOUNDS , TALKING - COMMUNICATION AND ROUTINE.

IF YOU LET YOUR COCKATIEL OUT AROUND THE HOUSE , KEEP TISSUES HANDY TO CLEAN UP WITH OR LAY PAPER DOWN AT COMMON SPOTS.

DONT ALLOW YOUR BIRD NEAR HOT STOVES AND DO NOT COOK WITH TEFLON PANS AS THIS CAN RELEASE POISONS IN THE AIR.

KEEP YOUR BIRD AWAY FROM WASHING POWDER AND ANY OTHER POTENTIAL HARMFULL LIQUIDS , POISONS OR FUMES.

 

LOVE YOUR PET COCKATIEL, THEY FULLY RELY ON YOU .
